Hello! My name is Josh. I am an artist, commercial photographer and educator.

Professionally:
I am currently an instructor at UCLA Extension and The Art Institute in North Hollywood. Courses I regularly teach are related to the photography industry in addition to digital design media (Bridge, Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator and Google Sketchup).
In the past, I have also served as faculty for The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) and Julia Dean Workshops.

Personally:
I'm left handed but do a lot of things with my right. For instance, I bat right sided, I kick with my right foot, I have a regular stance on a skateboard and I play a right-handed guitar and drum set. I was born and raised in El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los ángeles and like every native from Los Angeles, I have been spoiled with amazing weather.

Recent Personal Project:
My most recent project has been traveling to Utah to research and document a little state park not far from Bryce and Zion, aptly titled Kodachrome State Park for its colorful red rocks and canyons.
